The Central Northern Regional Electricity Distributor (CENORED) is set to embark on a token identifier (TID) rollover project to prevent people from tempering with electricity meters.
CENORED is putting all systems in place to get the process started and ensure that the rollover to the new software is done smoothly.
The old software within this prepaid meter has a base date of January 1, 1993, and will now roll over to the new best base, which is January 1, 2014.
The prepaid meter software enhances security because prepaid meters will be able to track consumption and also limit the number of people who tamper with the electricity meters.
Hamunyela also assured CENORED's prepaid electricity customers that their consumption rates would not be affected during the upgrade of the software.
The TID rollover will cover all the regions in which CENORED operates, that is, Otjozondjupa, Omaheke, Kunene, and Oshikoto.
All customers who have prepaid metres are called upon to cooperate with the commissioned electricians once they visit their houses.
All prepaid meters need to be updated by the 24th of November next year.
